Historical Note

The Woman's Franchise League of Indiana was formed out of the Woman's School League in 1911. The original organization focused on municipal suffrage only, but the Woman's Franchise League stood for equal suffrage on all levels of government. Its revised constitution from 1916 stated that it was "organized to educate the women of the State in civic consciousness and to secure for them the ballot." The organization consisted of branch leagues throughout the state and its headquarters was in Indianapolis. Membership in the League was established by enrollment of name and address and the payment of the annual dues.
